The Economic Collapse
February 28, 2012
For decades, the heartland of America has been the breadbasket of the
world. *Unfortunately, those days will shortly come to an end. *The
central United States is rapidly drying up and dust bowl conditions will
soon return. *There are a couple of major reasons for this. *Number one,
the Ogallala Aquifer is being depleted at an astounding pace. *The
Ogallala Aquifer is one of the largest bodies of fresh water in the
entire world, and water from it currently irrigates more than 15 million
acres of crops. *When that water is gone we will be in a world of hurt.
* Secondly, drought conditions have become the “new normal” in many
areas of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and other states in the middle part of
the country. *Scientists tell us that the wet conditions that we enjoyed
for several decades after World War II were actually the exception to
the rule and that most of time time the interior west is incredibly dry.
* They also tell us that when dust bowl conditions return to the area,
they might stay with us a lot longer than a decade like they did during
the 1930s. *Unfortunately, without water you cannot grow food, and with
global food supplies as tight as they are right now we cannot afford to
have a significant decrease in agricultural production. *But it is not
just the central United States that is experiencing the early stages of
a major water crisis. *Already many other areas around the nation are
rapidly developing their own water problems. *As supplies of fresh water
get tighter and tighter, some really tough decisions are going to have
to be made. *Fresh water is absolutely essential to life, and it is
going to become increasingly precious in the years ahead.

the export of water from the Great Lakes to outsiders - even to other
